Homes 4 the Homeless

Denver May Allow Tiny Home Villages for the Homeless

Denver will take up a decision to allow tiny home villages across the city, like one opened in 2018 that allowed 20 people to escape homelessness. It’s called The Beloved Community Village

Under a proposal, villages would be officially allowed in industrial, mixed-use and commercial zones, church sites, community centers and others. Opening up industrial sites could give organizers new access to warehouse sites on the edge of residential neighborhoods. Villages would be limited to 30 homes, depending on space. All units would have to be at least 70 square feet.

Villages would not need special approvals by the Denver City Council, but city staff would review each application. This year, the council  allowed the Beloved village to move onto a city site in Globeville despite intense neighborhood resistance.
